English Touring Opera's autumn season begins tonight at the Royal College of Music with Monteverdi's Coronation of Poppea (also on 9 Oct). This is the James Conway production as performed by RCM students a few months ago, but this time round the singers are professionals. There's also a rare chance to see Cavalli's Giasone (4, 5 and 10 Oct). Handel's Agrippina (8, 11 and 12 Oct) follows.
